Finding the Right Mattress

If you’re in the market for a new mattress, we at Mattress Peddlers know that it can be a tricky task in knowing exactly the type that will suit you best.

Consider the Mattress Size

If you’re currently replacing a mattress with a fit that you’re comfortable with, take the time to jot down the width, length and height so you can be sure your new mattress is going to fit properly in its designated space. It’s not a bad idea to write down the dimensions of your room as well, in case you’re considering an upgrade to a larger mattress.

Preparation for Mattress Shopping 

You should never rush the final decision on buying a mattress – especially since you’ll be spending at least 8 hours a day on it! Mattress shopping involves a lot of lying down, getting up and moving around. When you head out to look at possible mattresses, wear supportive shoes and casual, comfortable clothing will make your shopping experience easier and feel less rushed. When talking to a mattress professional, you’ll be seeing plenty of models to try out. Lie down in your usual sleep position and give yourself a few minutes to really consider the feel and fit. Turn from side to side, evaluate the support level, and make sure you feel relaxed and comfortable in all positions.

Recognizing Mattress Brands

There is no better asset to shopping for a new mattress than proper research! Do a little research to determine the brand, style, comfort and support level you’re interested in and share those details with the sales person at the store. At Mattress Peddlers, we make it a point to take this area of your shopping to heart, since the variety of mattress can seem endless and we know you’ll want the one that’s truly best for you.

Knowing Your Mattress Types 

The construction and composition of a mattress always dictates its support and comfort level. Most are comprised of innerspring coils, high-density foam, or a combination of the two. Coil count and gauge can vary among different brands of innerspring mattresses.


Foam and padding layers also help in determining s mattress’s comfort level. Memory foam, latex, high-density foam, and natural and synthetic fibers are all common comfort layer options – but all provide comfort and support in different ways. Some padding and foam varieties are exclusive to certain manufacturers. For example, EverCool® memory foam is only available in Serta iComfort mattresses, and here at Mattress Peddlers, we offer a full line of those options.
